Stark Effect - Mic In Track [csr003]


Published 2003


A "mic in track" is a recording made on a PC using MusicMatch Jukebox, a music utility packaged with many new PC's that allows the user to record from the microphone input of the PC's sound card and save the recording in mp3 format. The default filename is "mic in track" followed by a number. If that user also happens to be running a peer-to-peer file-sharing program, and unwittingly shares the directory in which the mic in track is stored, then these personal recordings can be easily downloaded from the user's computer. The vast majority of them are either silent or uninteresting, but many are like Christmas presents giftwrapped in nondescript serial numbers. They represent unique examples of audio vérité.

as a reader of Found magazine, I love what you've done here. did you just do a Limewire search for "mic in track"? Have to try that, although, as many of you know, the Limewire experience is not what it once was...

One of the most interesting pieces of music I have heard. This music sounds very "real," given that the particpants are essentially baring their souls, unaware that they will presenting their feelings to the world at large. And Stark Effect treats these people with the respect (or lack of it) that they deserve (see "Bunny Rabbits" and "I Miss You" as contrary examples).

Subject: A wide range of wonderful feelings
Using found (stolen?) audio clips of everyday people, Stark Effect provides a range of interesting music. "Bunnyrabbits, Satan, Cheese, and Milk" made me laugh out loud. "I Miss You" is incredibly touching and sad.

Voyeurism and pleasant music combine in a great experience. I love this stuff more than I can say.
